Gemstone Remedial

Gemstones are becoming more and more popular all around the world and more and more people are wearing gemstones in order to get benefits from them. Gemstones are undoubtedly the fastest acting astrological remedy and this is probably the reason why more and more people are getting interested in them. There are a large number of different gemstones available in the markets though vedic jyotish prescribes some specific gemstones for navagraha only. Over a period of time, many of my clients and readers have asked this question as to whether they can wear gemstones other than the gemstones which are said to belong to navagraha according to vedic jyotish and some of these people even mention the names of some specific gemstones which they want to wear or which they are already wearing and which are not among the gemstones which are said to belong to navagraha according to vedic jyotish. This makes an interesting question as to why do only some specific gemstones belong to navagraha whereas the other ones do not and why should these gemstones alone be worn in order to benefit from navagraha and why many other kinds of gemstones cannot make a native benefit from navagraha when such a native wears them. These are some very interesting but important questions about gemstones associated with navagraha and in today’s article, we will discuss this issue and we will try to find the answers to these questions.

To start with the discussion, let’s first refresh a few things about the working of gemstones. Gemstones work on the principal of capturing the energy radiations of their corresponding planets through their upper surface and then they transmit these energy radiations through their lower surface, into the body of the person who wears these gemstones. For a gemstone to capture the energy radiations of a planet, the gemstone must be able to capture the particular energy radiation of a planet which can contain specific wavelength and some other specific qualities. The same gemstone should also be capable of holding the energy radiations of such planet within itself for a very short period of time which is called transit time of the gemstone and this gemstone should also be capable of transmitting this energy into the body of the person who is wearing this gemstone. There are many gemstones available in the markets today which are not capable of capturing and transmitting the energy radiations of any planet among navagraha and hence they cannot be assigned to any planet among navagraha. Hence some kinds of tests must have been performed by the ancient vedic sages and astrologers after which they may have reached a conclusion as to which gemstone can capture the energy of which planet and accordingly that gemstone was assigned to the corresponding planets.

Capturing the energy radiations of a planet is not sufficient in itself for a gemstone to be assigned to a planet and there are some other properties which must be possessed by a gemstone in order for it to be assigned to a specific planet. A gemstone must be capable of capturing and transmitting the energy of one and only one planet among navagraha which are considered important according to Vedic Jyotish. Some gemstones are capable of capturing and transmitting the energy radiations of a planet among navagraha but these gemstones also tend to capture the energy radiations of some other planets which may or may not belong to navagraha and hence such gemstones cannot be assigned to any one planet among navagraha.

They can also be recommended according to different planetary periods in a person's chart, called dashas. Each planet has a corresponding gemstone (ratna); for example, emeralds are for Mercury, and diamonds, for Venus. There are also secondary stones (uparatnas) that can be substituted when a person's budget will not allow a more expensive primary gemstone.

One can control the body's energy-flow by diverting the negative impacts and increasing the positive influence of the planets governing the horoscope. The prophetic capability of astrology is enhanced by the ability to make remedial recommendations. Most of the astrologers follow the same age old principles of recommending the Gem Stones which represent the Ascendant (rising sign), the Fifth lord, the Ninth lord or the Moon sign lord, and avoiding the gem stones for the planets who are the lord of the 6th, 8th and the 12th lord. This is why most of the time people do not get any positive effects.

Ancient science behind gems

As per the legend associated with the gems, it is said that the king of the demons Bali came to the Indralok-the Heaven. He wanted to win over the Heaven and all the Gods. In Heaven, he was escorted by Indra himself under the guise of a Brahmin seeking to find an animal for propitiation. Indra pleaded with Bali to become animal for the sacrifice as he was not getting anyone. It was getting late and his Yagna would be rendered fruitless. Bali accepted it knowing that his body was invincible. This was known to Indra as well and he did not hurt the body of demon king but hit his head with Vajra. The demon king was shattered in to pieces of gems simply because he was a unique creature himself.

It is said in mythology that from the bones of demon king Bali, Diamonds were found; from his teeth the Pearls; from his blood drops Ruby; from the gall bladder Emerald; from his eyes came out Blue Sapphires; from the juice of his heart came Lapis Lazuli; from his bone marrow appeared Karketan; from his nails appeared Cat’s eye; from his body fat came Rock crystal; from flesh came Coral; from skin came out Yellow Sapphire; from his semen appeared gem called Bheesham.

The legend further goes that from these gems, Sun took away Ruby, Moon picked up Pearls, Mars took away Coral, Mercury took Emeralds, Jupiter picked up Yellow Sapphire, Venus took Diamonds, Saturn took Blue Sapphires,Rahu took away Hessonite and Ketu lifted Cats eye. This is the reason why these stones are worn by humans to enhance the strength of these planets.

moonstone is given primarily as a stone that opens the heart, though there’s also a scene where Alasdair uses it to scry the future.

Hematite is always connected to Mars, the red god of war; it was believed that when warriors rubbed their bodies with hematite, they became invulnerable.

Below are a few interesting myths and legends from all over the world regarding precious and semi-precious gemstones:


In Greek myth, one day Dionysus, the god of wine, celebration, intoxication, and joviality, became enraged with the mortals and decided he would take revenge by letting his two fierce tigers devour the next mortal to cross his path. He immediately spotted a beautiful young virgin maiden named Amethysta who was on her way to Diana's temple to pay homage to the goddess. The wrathful god detained Amethysta and unleashed his hungry tigers upon her. Amethysta cried out to Diana for help. When Diana saw what was about to happen, she turned Amethysta into a statue of gleaming clear quartz, thereby protecting her from the tigers. When Dionysus realized the ruthlessness of his actions, filled with remorse, he began to weep tears of wine over the statue. The tears stained the quartz statue purple, thus creating the stone Amethyst. The mythology of this stone, unsurprisingly, spreads through modern mythology and even ancient and recent legend.

Gemstones Astrology

Gemstones or jewels are beyond any doubt one of the most powerful devices used for Remedies in Astrology. Their use can be confirmed with the help of Ancient Histories of so many Civilizations and Countries. Kings, Queens and Rich people use to wear Gemstones to get good benefits and cast away Evils. And to the present day, many of the rich and famous people are wearing them. So what is the force working behind these gemstones. Are they magic or are they purely scientific devices. Let's try and find out.

First of all, let's know about the scientific mechanism involved behind the functioning of the Gemstones. In simple language, how do these Gemstones actually work. We will have a look at this concept right from the birth of a human. As most of you people may be knowing that out of the 12 Signs there is always a Sign rising at a particular degree any particular date, time and place. This Sign is called the Rising Sign or Ascendant or Lagna. When a child first comes out of his mother, the particular sign rising at that time in the sky as well all the planets where ever they are situated in transit at that time, all of them Register their positive or negative impacts on the Baby. The Sign rising at that time is called the Ascendant of the native which becomes First House of the Horoscope and all the planets are arranged in different houses of the Horoscope according to their transit position at the time of the birth of a child.

To have a scientific look at this concept, all the twelve houses of the Horoscope may be considered as twelve energy points in human body which register, store and emit energies. This way at the time of birth of a native, some energy centers register negative energies and some energy centers register positive energies. While some energy centers do not register any energy at all. It simply means that some house of the Horoscope have good and bad planets or we can say positive and negative planets while some houses of the Horoscope may be completely empty. Depending upon the nature of these energies the planets function or work as good or bad planets for a particular native. Again depending upon the degree and placement of a particular planet in a particular energy center, the planet may be strong or weak, clean or afflicted. This is where Gemstones come into play.

That is why Gemstones should be worn only on the advice of an expert Astrologer who knows a great deal about Gemstones and their applications. Wearing the right Gemstones can bless you with very good results where as whereas wearing the wrong Gemstones can bring great misfortunes to you. So be very careful wearing the Gemstones.
